Lemongrass (Cymbopogon schoenanthus) oil is a pungent grass native to the tropical and sub-tropical climates of Asia, Australia and Africa. With many healing properties, lemongrass is as effective a cleanser and deodorizer as it is in Thai soup. It can also strengthen your hair follicles and soothe an itchy and irritated scalp. Lemongrass oil has a pungent fresh lemon scent that stimulates, relaxes and brings balance.
Fact drop: Citronella, the incense used to repel insects, comes from lemongrass.
